Welcome to the website of the Keele Petrology Group

We carry out research in the broad fields of petrology, volcanology and geochemistry.

To solve problems in these fields, we utilise a wide range of field, geochemical, isotopic and quantitative textural techniques, often combining some or all of these methods to give our work a distinct multi-disciplinary flavour.
